Mpumalangas’s very own Lizelle Lee has been named in South Africa’s squad for the 2018 ICC Women’s World Twenty20 tournament in the West Indies. Lizelle was born in Ermelo, Mpumalanga and now lives in Potchefstroom.
She is a South African cricketer who made her debut for the South Africa national women’s cricket team in late 2013. In March 2018, she was one of 14 players to be awarded a national contract by Cricket South Africa ahead of the 2018–19 season and in May 2018, during the series against Bangladesh Women, she became the third player for South Africa Women to score 2 000 runs in WODIs. Playing for Surrey Stars, Lee scored a century in the final of the 2018 Women’s Cricket Super League to help the Stars beat Loughborough Lightning.
We wish her all the success in the world.
The 2018 ICC Women’s World Twenty20 will be hosted in the West Indies from 9 to 24 November 2018.
